Associate Professor of American Studies Roger House wrote in The Hill about how it will require more than a conviction in the death of Ahmaud Arbery to have racial justice in Georgia.
True justice means taking seriously the opportunity to claim Georgia as a black-run state. True justice will make Georgia for black Americans what Utah is for Mormons, New Mexico for Hispanics, and Hawaii for Asian Americans. Only then will white instigators think twice before forming a posse to track down an innocent black man.
House suggests that former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who narrowly lost in 2018, should abandon the idea of being a Vice Presidential candidate, and run for governor again.
